Q: How Do I Know If My Dentist Is Credible?

In a bustling city like Winnipeg, there are numerous dentists to choose from and although it can be easy to find a dental practice near you, the question patients should ask themselves is: how do I know if I can trust my dentist?

We’ve outlined some qualities you should consider when evaluating your current care or deciding if you’re looking to make a change. 

Listens To You

A good dentist takes time to listen to your dental concerns, never rushes through treatment and will work with you to make your visit as pleasant as possible, especially if you’re anxious about dental work. Dentists can get very busy seeing one patient after the other, so you’ll want to ensure your dentist focuses more on quality care instead of quantity. 

Educates You 

An ideal dentist will educate you on ways to improve your oral health and concisely explain your treatment options, as well as potential dental problems that may arise in the future. This includes teaching you how to properly take care of your teeth and going over any potential procedures step-by-step.

Only Promotes What’s Necessary

Excellent dentists won’t put you on the spot by upselling you products or treatments you don’t need and didn’t ask for. They’ll help you figure out which products will benefit you the most and what your dental insurance can cover. 

Cares About You

The best dentists will ensure they value you as a patient by giving you space to ask questions, thoroughly examining your mouth during a checkup or walking you through different procedure options to find the best fit. 

Some might even go the extra mile and follow up with you after a long, complicated procedure to make sure your recovery period is going as planned.
